The series of ACTivate digital study guides provide opportunities for expression designed to stimulate community discussions that have the power to motivate citizens to action. ACT in the title ACTivate stands for “Arts Curriculum Tool” because we believe art creates socio-emotional connections to learning that can deepen the impact of the lesson.

ACTivate uses creative writing prompts to encourage personal responsibility and community involvement, emphasizing the longterm impact that seemingly small actions have overtime. The writing prompts invoke deeper discussions that inspire hands on artistic exploration. From poetry to music to mixed media creation, ACTivate content offers a variety of ways to expand critical thinking and motivate choices that positively influence communities by empowering youth and families.
